Hello, Since your TV is not a Smart TV and has no internet connectivity at all whatsoever you need an external device to stream Netflix on the set. There are many devices that will work (Roku, Amazon Firestick, Apple TV, Smart Blu Ray player, etc.).

Expert:  Aric replied 1 month ago.

The device will plug into the HDMI port on the TV, you'll select HDMI as the INPUT, and then simply follow the instructions on screen that the device you plug in will display. On a budget, I would strongly recommend the Amazon Fire stick, as I personally use this on my non-Smart TV's in my own home.

Again, your TV has NO INTERNET connectivity at all, as it's an older entry-level set so it requires an additional device as I've outlined above in order to get Netflix.

Let me know if you need further help. Also, the site shows that since the question is open that you are still looking for help. Or, if you received the information you were looking for-could you please kindly rate my service POSITIVELY (by clicking a 3-5 star rating at the top of the page) to reflect that? Thanks in advance.

Do you need further assistance with this?

Expert:  Aric replied 1 month ago.

I'm unsure why you haven't replied back or rated me, but Netflix requires an internet connection (hence "Net" in the name) and also a device that supports it. Your TV has neither. If you'd like to see for yourself, here are your TV's complete specs below:
